'll finish. i got a chance to take the kids, i see the book. i got a chance to take the kids to new york city. and we got on a bus and we were having a trip. so all the sudden, it was not only new york city, we were going to see "west side story" and go to my friend's restaurant pat sei's on 56th and eighth. i'm going it take the doidz the fancy italian restaurant and west side story. and so people started, you know, like teachers, you know, wanted to be chap roans. they wanted to be -- [laughter] so and of course, you know, okay. it was like by the time we had -- i think it was three students to one teacher. but anyway, okay. but anyway, i got -- miss carol wanted to come on the trip. the principal wanted to come on the trip. i go to the class, and they were all we're going new york! aye! listen, you know, who is going with us? most of us. everybody on a couple of others. couple of others. boy, i want you to know miss cirl wants to go on the trip. no! not the principal. we'll never have any fun! i said, okay, you know, it's a perfect chance and opportunity to teach you a life lesson that wil
